Rhinoplasty (Surgery of The Nose) at Dr. Papanastasiou’s Clinic in Montreal

The nose is a very important part of the face. Disproportion in any of its parts will result in deformity to some degree. Being the focal point of the patient’s face, a misshapen nose is often an object of great insecurity for an individual.

Recent improvements in our understanding of the normal anatomy of the nose have allowed us to produce much more natural, esthetic results, individually tailored to the patient’s facial structure, in sharp contrast to the “assembly-line tweaked up nose” of the past.

This very popular surgery has now improved to the point of actually being a scar-less operation in the great majority of cases. This is because, in most cases, the surgery is performed from inside the nose via the nostrils.

The surgery is performed in our private clinic, under general anesthesia. It usually takes about 1½ hours to complete and there is then a stay of about 2 hours in our recovery room until the patient is fully awake.

Usually, bruising around the eyes and swelling on the nose could last from 7 to10 days. There is a slight to moderate degree of discomfort, which usually lasts only the first couple of days. The final result may not be apparent until 6 to 12 months following nose surgery although a gradual improvement starts to show at about a month after the surgery.

The results are very natural looking to the point that even persons in your immediate entourage might not notice that your nose was corrected although they will wonder “why you look so good”!

I had a successful breast surgery on May 24th 2016. Through the information sessions to the surgery and post surgery every single staff I dealt with was professional nice and patient. Dr. Papanastasiou is a great surgeon, professional, patient with a beautiful smile. I wish I had the surgery long time ago.....Big thank to Dr. Papanastasiou, God bless you Doctor!! Thank you so much Francoise, Stephanie, Michele and the young ladies at the reception and everyone who was in the surgery room. A big hug and thanks to NANCY the wonderful Nurse who took care of me in the recovery room, this great lady put her heart in what she does!!!! God bless you all.

"I recently had a breast lift and implants put in by Dr. P and his team. The results are wonderful, very natural and I love them. His team was fantastic, very professional and kind. I would definitely recommend Dr P and his clinic!"

"I recommend Dr. Papanastasiou, he is very kind and professional and best technology I've seen after going to loose my money to get evaluations with other doctors I came back. I had breast augmentation and asked for a natural look and that' s exactly what I got! From A to Z my experience was excellent! I also did lipo and I barely got bruises and no pain, he has magic hands :-)"

"About 4 weeks ago I had lower eye surgery for bags and wrinkles. I was initially a little nervous about the procedure but after speaking with him he made me feel at ease and I felt this was the right decision for me. The procedure took about 1 hour and I was back at work 1 week later with just some minor bruising on my cheeks. I was very impressed with Dr. Papanastasiou. He was very professional and I am extremely satisfied with the results. After the procedure he also called me that night to see how I was doing. I was extremely impressed. I would have no problem seeing him again for any procedure and would easily recommend him. Thank you again Dr. Papanastasiou"

"Two years ago I decided to have breast augmentation and a full rhinoplasty. I went to see Dr. Papanastasiou and felt immediately comfortable with him and his staff and confident that he was the best doctor to do the work. It turns out that I needed a revision (to correct minor issues) for both surgeries (breasts and nose) and I was met with understanding and openness. Dr. Papanastasiou and his staff were very accommodating and compassionate! There were no hassles or arguments regarding the need for the revisions and this was very reassuring! I'm extremely pleased with the results of both surgeries and I'm grateful to have been in Dr. Papanastasiou's care ☺️"
